Reasking. I did not want just load plugin for fun.

I wanted to use two authentication realms, one with Credential::Password 
and Store::DBIx::Class, the other with Credential::Authen::Simple and 

However, since I have (don't know why exactly) both 
Catalyst::Authentication and Catalyst::Plugin::Authentication, I seems 
to have problems setting all of those to work together.
